7:03 am
petraeus spread in an unexpected new direction. the pentagon investigating what it calls inappropriate communications from general john allen, the current commander of american forces in afghanistan. >> they were exchanged with jill kelley, the same woman who reportedly was threatened by paula broadwell, petraeus's biographer and mistress. bob orr begins our coverage in washington. bob, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, norah. good morning, charlie. word of the widening scandal came very early this morning. literally announced mid flight to reporters traveling with defense secretary leon panetta to australia. >> on sunday, the federal bureau of investigation referred to the department of defense a matter involving general john allen, commander of the international security assistance force, in afghanistan. >> reporter: the allegations against general allen are said to involve messages written from 2010 to 2012 between the general and jill kelley, the same tampa socialite who received threatening e-mails from the
7:04 am
lover of general david petraeus. when asked if the e-mails between allen and kelley were of a sexual nature, a senior defense official wouldn't be specific, but did say, "they are potentially inappropriate, and they bear looking into. the department is currently reviewing between 20,000 and 30,000 documents connected to this matter." allen, a married four-star marine general, took over from petraeus as the top american commander in afghanistan in july 2011. he told pentagon officials he's done nothing wrong. allen was in line to become supreme allied commander for europe, a nomination that's now on hold. allen, though, will remain in charge of 68,000 u.s. troops in afghanistan. meanwhile, late last night, fbi officials searched the north carolina home of paula broadwell, the woman linked to petraeus in an extramarital affair. agents left carrying several boxes of documents. officials have told cbs news that that scandal began to surface in june when broadwell
7:05 am
e-mailed kelley, telling her to stay away from petraeus. this was about the same time that broadwell and petraeus broke off their affair. sources say when petraeus learned that broadwell was sending harassing messages to kelley, he asked her to stop. kelley was spotted monday leaving her tampa home. she's not commented, but she has hired a high-powered legal team, including abbe lowell. meanwhile, the man at the center of the scandal has also stayed silent. friends and former aides who have spoken with him say petraeus did not intend to resign from his job until it became clear the scandal would become public. they now say petraeus is extremely remorseful. >> he sa, in those words, "i screwed up, what i did was wrong, there's no excuses for it," and he's not going to try to explain it away. >> reporter: colonel peter mansoor worked with petraeus from 2006 to 2008 and he's spoken with him several times since the scandal broke friday.
7:06 am
mansoor says broadwell was given exclusive access to the general. >> i thought it odd that he would allow someone to have an extended imbed with him. it morphed over time to where she was eventually almost considered a close member of the team. >> reporter: it's an impression broadwell did not try to refute. >> a lot of my former peers didn't know how to treat me. was i major broadwell or was i journalist broadwell? >> reporter: sources stress that he only engaged in one affair and it was with broadwell. we've also learned that one of the reasons the fbi was so concerned about broadwell's original e-mails to jill kelley is that they apparently contain some private security information about petraeus's travel schedule. at first, agents thought somebody must have broken into a pennsylvania trace's files. in the end, it turns out broadwell was simply forwarding information petraeus had shared with her. >> john miller joins us now. what are the implications of
7:07 am
this for general allen? >> so this is fallout from the broadwell investigation, which in that case, they subpoena all of broadwell's accounts, her known accounts, including the unknown accounts. but they also subpoena kelley's accounts so they can get whatever cross traffic is there. that's normal investigative procedure. in the course of going through that, looking through relative material, they find the communications between her and general allen. now, they know that general allen is coming up for confirmation hearing, so this is the fbi kind of turning over all of the kelley communications with general allen to dod saying before this comes up or doesn't come up or comes up later in the confirmation hearings, you need to look at this stuff from your optic and say is there anything inappropriate or improper here. >> general allen insists he did nothing wrong. however, the pentagon -- panetta's spokesperson says this
7:08 am
involves 20,000 to 30,000 documents. that's a lot of documents sent between jill kelley, a civilian woman, and a tom general in afghanistan. doesn't that raise red flags? >> there is from 2010 to 2012. this covers a couple years. they're not documents the way we consider documents. these are e-mails going back and forth. if you see the way people blackberry with their iphones and text back and forth, it's still a lot, but i think what they did is -- >> do civilian house wives in florida have communications like that with top generals in afghanistan? >> i think jill kelley isn't your average civilian housewife in florida. we'll get into this more later. but she is a major figure around the central command base in mcdill air force base. >> and well-known in washington as well. >> that, too. you see that she's going to visit petraeus in washington at the cia and petraeus is telling this to broadwell, and broadwell and he have just broken off. so you can watch the wheels
7:09 am
turning there, she's thinking did he throw me over for her. and then the broadwell e-mail starts. so you've got -- kelley knows broadwell. broadwell knows kelley. they both know petraeus. and this circle has become the house of cards. >> then there's the fbi agent in tampa who knows kelley. >> okay, so how does he know kelley? where does she get an fbi agent who says i can get a criminal investigation started into these harassing e-mail bs by the fbi. she meets him when she attends a program where they learn how the fbi works. he does a briefing there. she chats him afterwards. when this happens, and this is much later, she contacts him and says i have this problem, can you get me to the right person. he brings her to the cyber squad. >> quick question again on paula broadwell. we've been led to believe that the fbi thinks there's nothing wrong, she had no classified documents. but last night, the fbi spent four hours at her house in north carolina pulling boxes out of her house.
7:10 am
they said searching for additional information. does that suggest, do they think this is not over? >> as we reported yesterday, she did have classified documents, but she's also a major in the army reserve. she's got a security clearance. the question is how were those documents obtained and how were they stored? so they tidied up the search yesterday. they got a consensual search warrant. so they're looking for any other loose ends there. >> john miller, thank you. the political pressure from congress is growing as well. sharyl attkisson is on capitol hill. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, charlie. members of congress say with each day, more questions are raised, increasing the scope of their investigations here on capitol hill. as congress's investigations broadened to petraeus and his affair, key members of the house and senate committee say the fbi should not have left them out of the loop. republican senator olympia snowe
7:11 am
is on the intelligence committee and says the petraeus affair and fbi probe, which intercepted personal e-mails, adds another dimension. >> what was the basis for this investigation, what steps were taken by the fbi to initiate this investigation in the first place, was the court order secured. >> reporter: chairman of the house homeland security committee peter king has his own questions for the fbi. >> not telling the intelligence community about that was wrong, absolutely wrong, and the fbi is going to have to explain itself to the committee. if not, there's going to be consequen consequences. >> reporter: for the first time, leon panetta commented aboard a flight, calling it a very sad situation for the general's career to end in scandal. reporters ask whether the former general could be prosecuted if the affair began while he was on active duty. >> you know, i don't know. i don't know the answer to that. i'm reading the papers like you are to determine just what the
7:12 am
committee finds out, what the ultimate investigation determines on that issue. >> reporter: republican senator lindsey graham is pushing for a committee to investigate all of this, saying it's grown too vast and intertwined for individual committees to investigate separately. >> thank you. president obama is putting together his cabinet for a second term, including a new cia director. so far, hillary clinton has confirmed she's going to leave. as bill plante reports, republicans already are objecting to her potential replacement. bill, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, norah. that's exactly right. cbs news has learned that the president is likely to nominate susan rice, the u.s. ambassador to the united nations, to replace hillary clinton as secretary of state. white house sources say the president feels that he should be able to choose the cabinet members he wants, and they say that rice has done a good job on iran and north korea. but rice was the public face of
7:13 am
the administration's initial response to the attacks in benghazi, libya, saying that they were prompted by spontaneous protests, not terrorism, and she's come under fire from republicans. when asked about the possibility of rice as secretary of state, senator lindsey graham had this to say on "face the nation." >> i'm not entertaining promoting anybody that i think was involved with the benghazi debacle. we need to get to the bottom of it. the president has a lot of leeway with me and others when it comes to making appointments, but i'm not going to promote somebody who i think has misled the country or is either incompetent. that's my view of susan rice. >> reporter: white house sources say these objections are unfounded, that rice was simply repeating what intelligence agencies had told her and that graham should be aware of her minimal role. massachusetts senator john kerry was also talked about as the possible secretary of state, but white house sources are now
7:14 am
talking about him as secretary of defense, replacing leeley. and john brennan is a shoo-in to hed the cia, unless he wants to retire, in which case the job is likely to go to his deputy michael morell. congress gets back to work this morning with a long list of things to do. there is still talk of a compromise to prevent a budget crisis. for months now, steve kroft has been covering the impact of gridlock in congress. his interview with senate leaders harry reid and mitch mcconnell ran just before election day. >> hi, charlie. >> what do you think the possibility of congress compromising with the president stands today? >> i think that it's got to happen. i think substantial compromise, maybe not work out all the problems, maybe put some of them off beyond january 1st, but i think they have to make some real problem between now and the first of the year. >> and on the house side, it's clear that boehner is sending a message to fellow republicans in the house who have got to make extra steps that we didn't before. >> i think that's true.
7:15 am
and i think the president has responded by saying that i'm not whetted to the idea of tax rate increases. i'll settle for more revenue if that's what i can get. >> you got senators reid and mcconnell to actually sit together. >> it was like arranging the paris pease talks or the camp david talks. it wasn't easy. >> were they as uncomfortable as they looked sitting next to each other? >> yes. >> and what did you learn from that? >> well, i think that -- what can you say? they don't strike me as two guys that are -- can sit down in a room over a whiskey and kind of work things out. they're very locked in their ways and they are both political tacticians. that's what they do. >> they are brilliant political tacticians. anybody who knows senator mcconnell and reid knows that. they're both very good at what they do, and outmaneuvering one another, which raises the question, with no personal relationship and they're so politically far apart and beholden to their interests in
7:16 am
the party, why should we expect that compromise will happen? >> i think that the future of the party, republican party very much depends on getting away from this view held by some in the public that they're just obstructionists. the other thing is that there are just too many things that are really important. like the bond rating, for example. there's a lot of talk now that if they don't work something out, we're likely to use another aaa bond rating, which costs the american taxpayer even more money. just too many things that have to be worked out. i think the main message from the election is we want you people to get together and do it. >> and business leaders saying fix it. >> but it's also a bit like -- nothing focuses the concentration like the feeling of the hangman's noose. and that's where america is unless it does something about this. >> now at a time when we've got 30 days or so to focus on really important things, we get the first scandal. lord only knows how long to
7:17 am
divert everybody's attention. >> do you think it's getting more coverage than the negotiations in congress or the fiscal cliff? >> by a factor of ten. >> steve kroft, good to see you, thank you. two weeks after superstorm sandy, some 35,000 customers in the hardest hit areas still have no power. gas rationing ended in new jersey this morning, but continues in new york city and long island. new york governor andrew cuomo is asking the federal government for $30 billion more in disaster aid. cuomo also says long island's main power company was not prepared and he is planning an investigation. it is time now to show you some of this morning's headlines from around the globe.

the fbi because you're scaring the [ bleep ] out of me. >> welcome back to "cbs this morning." we are taking a closer look at jill kelley. she's the one who received the anonymous e-mail threats that led to the petraeus resignation as cia director. >> we told you earlier how the fbi's been investigating e-mails between kelley and the top u.s. general in afghanistan. erin moriarty has been following jill kelley's story. good morning. >> good morning, charlie. this latest twist is completely unexpected in this case. but it appears jill kelley may have known general allen, who was also stationed in tampa, florida, the same way she knew general petraeus. as a fixture on tampa social circuit, jill kelley is used to being in the spotlight, but not like this. she may now be at the center of a new scandal involving general john allen, top u.s. commander in afghanistan. her picture has been splashed across front pages ever since she was identified as the target of harassing e-mails from paula
7:32 am
broadwell, david petraeus's alleged mistress. broadwell apparently saw the 37-year-old as a threat, but according to kelley's brother, his sister and petraeus were nothing more than friends. >> i know who my sister is and i know she's a good mother and a good wife. this is completely uncharacteristic of her to actually have a relationship outside of her marriage. >> reporter: kelley has three young children with her husband, a prominent cancer surgeon. the two met petraeus about five years ago through their charitable work for military families. in fact, the couple often attended events at the military central command in tampa. kelley was also known for hosting glitzy bashes of her own at her million-dollar mansion. petraeus and his wife were often guests. as the petraeus scandal continued to unravel sunday, kelley was hosting a birthday party for one of her kids. for now, kelley is staying silent. she left her home monday for the first time, but didn't say a word. along with high-profile attorney
7:33 am
abbe lowell. she also hired judy smith, the same crisis manager who represented monica lewinsky. >> the primary thing is that she wants her privacy protected. and i think that she's going to probably come out at some point and make a statement. >> so that's what we read into the hiring of this criminal lawyer ae lowell is the fact that she wants to protect her privacy. >> well, i think she does. when i first heard that, and i'm sure you reacted the same way because he has almost this kind of reputation of taking on these political sex scandals. i mean, he represented former president clinton and gary condit. but in this case, i should point out that abbe lowell has known the kelleys for almost ten years. he was not recently hired. he's been involved really since june. and so for two reasons, one is when she knew that this was an fbi investigation and she was asked to speak with the fbi,
7:34 am
then she did get his counsel. and you must remember this with the john edwards case, he is so fast on saying if you report that story, you report that story at your risk and i think she wants that kind of pit bull. >> why would jill kelley have reported these initial threats to the fbi? there's still some questions about how that occurred and why the fbi followed up on them. >> i should point out that she never met paula broadwell. she did not know her. she did not know that petraeus was involved in any kind of affair. all she knows is that she's getting these e-mails that start about the same time that general petraeus was told the fbi that the relationship with paula broadwell ended. the e-mails are written and the writer seems to know petraeus's schedule and knows jill kelley's schedule, and so her concern is -- and she has this friend who works with the fbi that maybe his e-mail has been hacked. she's nervous.
7:35 am
she thinks somebody is watching her. >> when she gave that information to her friend that was the fbi agent, did she assume he would do something with it and did she want him to do something with it, like find out who was sending these e-mails? >> right. i think it was starting off as more of a cyber stalking investigation done as a favor. and then it became something much more. i think that's when she asked abbe lowell, because it's an fbi investigation. >> erin moriarty, thank you so much. a computer software billionaire is on the run. people want to question john mcafee in the murder of his neighbor. we're going to meet a reporter who visited mcafee's home and was afraid that he would never get out. you're watching "cbs this morning." i'm so happy to be marrying your mom. you know that, right? uh-huh. i know this hasn't always been easy for you. and i'm really happy that you're in my life, too. ♪ it's just like yours, mom!

the found ser er is in hiding. officials in central south america want to talk to him about the murder of his neighbor. >> reporter: police in central belize say this is the murder scene and this is the man they want to question about it. 67-year-old john mcafee. in the '80s, he founded the anti-virus software company that bears his name. mcafee lives next door to the american, american ex-patriot gregory faull who was found with a single gunshot wound in the back of the head. reports say the two men had been at odds for some time, arguing over things like noise made by mcafee's dogs. belizean authorities are calling mcafee a person of interest in the murder. >> he has not brought any tangible conclusions yet. the motive has not yet been established. >> reporter: mcafee is telling he's innocent and he believes this is part of a belizean government conspiracy to get him to leave the country, saying "i'm adept at hiding. i'll do whatever it takes to
7:41 am
stay alive." this is not mcafee's first run-in with police in belize. last april they raided his home looking for drugs and guns. his fear of authorities evident in an interview with a belizean reporter days later. >> i am a 66-year-old man who would never expect 42 armed soldiers and police to storm into his property in riot gear. >> reporter: mcafee said only guns were found, which he proved were legal. he was released without charge. the software pioneer told "the new york times" he had lost all but four million of the $100 million he made when he sold his company in the '90s. he moved to belize three years ago to lower his taxes. police say there was no sign of forced entry at the murder victim's home and the only items missing were a computer and a phone. for "cbs this morning," carter evans, los angeles. >> jeff has met mcafee several times. he published a story last week about mcafee's behavior and alleged criminal connections.
7:42 am
welcome. >> thank you. >> what's your assessment of his state of mind? >> well, it's hard to say. john mcafee is a guy who has been through a lot. i first got to know him, he was just a larger than life, charismatic character. famous, wealthy. the world was really his oyster, and in the five years that i've known him, he's followed a downward trajectory. >> because? >> well, because -- i think because he has some dark aspects to his character, and in a sense, being able to do whatever you want can be a curse at times. >> you say when you recently visited him that you were concerned about your own safety. why? >> well, i was. because i talked to people who had been intimate, who had been very close to him. and many of them had left his property -- had left his entourage and told me that they were frightened for their lives, even back in the united states. so thousands of miles away from him, they were still worried that somehow he could reach out and harm them. >> what do you think he's capable of doing?
7:43 am
>> i don't really know what he's capable of doing. he's a very strange man. he's one of these people who the more i've gotten to know him, the harder it is for me to pin down exactly -- >> and the last time you talked to him? >> a month or two ago. i e-mailed him yesterday and he didn't reply. >> any idea where he is? >> the place where he's living in belize is about 30 miles from the mexican border and he has boats. he could be anywhere. >> everybody knows mcafee security. all the time it pops up, the anti-virus stuff on my computer. is he still wealthy? >> it's impossible to really pin down any fact about john mcafee. he told "the new york times" after the crash that he lost 96% of his money. i wrote an article in 2010 pointing out that that might not be true. it's very hard to pin down. he sold all of his possessions in the united states. he had estates in hawaii, colorado, new mexico. he sold everything and moved to

7:49 am
election. chip reid is on capitol hill. chip, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, charlie and norah. paul ryan may have lost his bid to be vice president, but he won re-election to his seat here in congress. and when he returns, he will still be chairman of the powerful house budget committee, and that will put him right smack in the middle of the titanic bat tle with the president over spending and taxes. >> we were surprised at the outcome. we knew this was going to be a close race. we thought we had a very good chance of winning it. >> reporter: like so many republicans, paul ryan says that even on election day, he had no idea he and mitt romney were going to lose so decisively. >> i'm very fortunate to have had this experience, but losing never feels good. >> reporter: in his first tv interview since the election, he told the cbs affiliate in madison, wisconsin, that the chief reason for the loss was not the issues, it was democratic turnout. >> especially in urban areas, which definitely gave president obama the big margin to win this race. >> reporter: he reiterated his
7:50 am
opposition to the president's call for raising taxes on families making more than 250,000 a year. >> the goal here is to keep raising tax rates, then that puts our successful small businesses, which is where most of our jobs come from, out of business. >> reporter: but at times, ryan displayed a more conciliatory tone than on the campaign trail. he repeatedly called for finding common ground to avoid the economic catastrophe scheduled to take effect at the end of the year. >> i think we need to keep room open for a compromise, for negotiation to make sure that bad things don't happen just in a month or two with the economy. >> reporter: asked about running for president in 2016, a subject of much chatter in washington, ryan found the idea this early laughable. >> i think everybody's tired of talking about presidential politics. i am. >> reporter: i tell you, though, here in washington, 2016 and who's going to be the republican
7:51 am
nominee is no laughing matter. people are already looking at paul ryan and every move he makes in that context. by the way, jessica arpe is the reporter that did the very fine job in that interview. >> it is interesting to hear paul ryan say what a lot of people think, i've had enough of talking about presidential politics at this point. >> but he also confirms this notion that a lot of people within the romney and ryan campaign thought they were going to win. >> some of the metrics were wrong and now there's an internal debate about how they got it so wrong. >> and we'll get more on that from mike huckabee. >> exactly. mike huckabee will be here shortly. four years ago, remember mike huckabee ran for president. he didn't win either. we're going to ask the former arkansas governor what he took out of this election and where republicans go from here. we've got that story ahead on "cbs this morning." t ways to say get well to your loved ones. ♪ this came for you, mommy.

good morning, everybody. it is 8:00 a.m. welcome back to "cbs this morning." the pentagon's sex scandal widens. another four-star general, john allen, is now under investigation, too. we'll talk with john miller. and millions of americans use instagram every day. we'll ask the billionaire co-founder of instagram why america turns to his app to share their pictures. but first, here's a look at what's been happening in the world and what we've been covering on "cbs this morning." >> word of the widening petraeus scandal came very early this morning. >> the pentagon has been investigating what it calls inappropriate communications
8:01 am
from general john allen, the current commander of american forces in afghanistan. >> they were exchanged with jill kelley, the same woman who reportedly was threatened by paula broadwell, petraeus's biographer and mistress. >> this latest list is completely unexpected in this case. >> do civil yap house wives in florida have communications like that with top generals in afghanistan? >> i think jill kelley isn't your average civilian housewife in florida. >> cbs news has learned that the president is likely to nominate susan rice, the u.s. ambassador to the united nations, to replace hillary clinton as secretary of state. >> there is still talk of a compromise to prevent a budget crisis. >> you got senators reid and mcconnell to actually sit together. >> it was like arranging the paris pease talks. it wasn't easy. >> and a computer security software billionaire is on the run. police want to question john mcafee in the murder of his neighbor. >> what do you think he's capable of doing? >> i don't really know what he's capable of doing. >> "skyfall" came in number one
8:02 am
this weekend with $88 million. it's about a spy who fights terrorists and sleeps with a lot of women. critics are calling it well-made, while david petraeus is calling it relatable. i'm charlie rose with gayle king and norah o'donnell. the top u.s. commander in afghanistan, general john allen is under investigation. the fbi has connected him to the woman who first blew the whistle on this case. senior correspondent john miller, former fbi assistant director joins us here again. good morning again. >> good morning. >> so why was this fbi agent that knew jill kelley thrown off the case, or was he? >> okay. well, that's interesting. because he was never on the case. but he is the agent who brings the case into the office. he knows jill kelley. she's attended the fbi citizens academy. he did a presentation. he gave her a card. they stayed in touch. so when she gets the e-mail, she
8:03 am
says i want to see who's sending me these things and he brings it to the cyber squad. he's like jeez, there's no threat here. if it's a friend of yours, i guess we can open the case and it meets the statute. here's what happens after that. he is saying to them what's the update? they say it may involve petraeus. at some point, they say we're not giving you any more information. because this information seems to be funneling back to jill kelley. so he's cut out of the case, not thrown off the case. >> but that's the irony of this whole thing. she starts it by telling an fbi friend, and then it's circled all the way back and now it's on general allen, who is the top u.s. commander in afghanistan, the nato commander. 20,000 to 30,000 documents, that to me is a lot of documents. >> and described as inappropriate documents. i'm curious, what exactly does that mean? >> i think what that means is -- i mean, that's over a two-year period. still, that means they're sending a number of those a day.
8:04 am
that's too much communication between two people for that to be something more than an extraordinary relationship with that level of communication. so what happens there is the fbi gets that in the course of this investigation. remember, the target of this case isn't david petraeus. the target of this case is paula broadwell and whether there's a stalking charge to be brought. these other people become collateral damage, and now you add general allen to that because he's coming up for confirmation. the fbi turns over the kelley e-mail saying this isn't part of our criminal probe, but if you're going to go through a confirmation process, you might as well see this now. >> don't you think story is far from over and possibly a criminal investigation now? >> i think the criminal investigation is just about over. and i doubt -- and i could be wrong. this may heat up because of the pressure and publicity. i doubt anyone will ever be charged, but i think we'll see more scandal and more collateral damage as more people become more ensnared in this.
8:05 am
>> and more people and more parties? >> well, i think when you're going through everybody's e-mails and 20,000 and then they start to say well, what else should we turn over? this is going to be one of those things where somebody started to pull a string and didn't know that the whole thing was going to unravel. >> that is the buzz on capitol hill, that more people will be involved. >> more scandal. you heard it here first. thank you, john miller. 7% of people have heartburn every day, and the new research suggests that many of them are suffering from something other than acid reflux. but doctors don't know what. "the wall street journal" reports that half the people who suffer from reflux disease don't get relief from acid reducing medication. doctors suspect that system of them may be suffering from a reflux of bile, a liquid produced in the liver, instead of stomach acid. britain's bbc has been knocked off its feet by another serious error. a news report accusing an innocent person of child abuse. this morning its two top
8:06 am
executives have stepped aside. charlie d'agata is in london. charlie, good morning. >> reporter: more may be to come after an apparent cover-up of shoddy inaccurate reporting has landed the bbc in its worst credibility crisis in years. the bbc's top executive is among the first to go, jumping before he was pushed. but even that caused outrage when he walked with a payoff of more than $700,000, despite being on the job for less than two months. it was a rare moment when british politicians were united in sound and fury. on his first day at his new job as ceo of "the new york times," the former bbc director general said he has faith the corporation will recover. >> like many people, i'm very saddened by recent events at the bbc, but i believe the bbc is the world's greatest
8:07 am
broadcaster. but no doubt it will once again regain the public's trust. >> reporter: the person appointed as acting bbc chief, mark davy, is a marketing man with no journalism experience. he'll need to restore that trust in the bbc. first came the decision to kill a story on the flamboyant '70s star exposed as a child molester who even preyed on children at mental institutions. things got even worse when the bbc's flagship program "newsnight" aired a story wrongly implicating a former politician of sexual abuse at a children's home. >> there is quite a shock around the bbc being such an imminent news organization with such a history of unimpeachable reporting and journalism being confronted with, you know, not
8:08 am
just one failure, but two failures. >> reporter: the fallout this week shows now that less than half of the british people polled trust bbc journalists in the wake of the crisis. it is the first time that number has dipped below 50%. >> thank you, charlie d'agata. this morning, the voice of elmo is taking some time off from "sesame street." as terrell brown reports, the character's puppeteer is fighting allegations of a sexual relationship with an underaged boy. >> reporter: to millions of young children,le moe elmo is . kevin clash is the man behind the fuzzy red puppet. and according to this documentary, turned elmo into a cultural phenomenon. >> i knew that elmo should represent love. just kissing and hugging. >> reporter: clash, 52, is accused of having sex with a
8:09 am
16-year-old boy. his accuser, now 23, told "sesame street's" producers in june that they began having a relationship seven years ago. in a statement, sesame workshop said "we conducted a thorough investigation and found the allegation of underage conduct to be unsubstantiated. our investigation did reveal that kevin exercised poor judgment and violated company policy regarding internet usage and he was disciplined." clash has taken a break from "sesame street," so he can defend himself from what he called false and defamatory accusations. "i am a gay man. i had a relationship with the accuser. it was between two consenting adults and i am deeply saddened that he's trying to characterize it as something other than what it was." whether the scandal will have lasting damage remains to be seen elmo is one of the faces of "sesame street" with countless dvds, games and toys to his name. in all, sesame workshop made
8:10 am
nearly $47 million in royalties from merchandise tie-ins in 2010. so elmo is no ordinary puppet. he's also lots of cash in hand. for "cbs this morning," terrell brown, new york. former republican presidential candidate mike huckabee says his party has done a pathetic job of reaching out to minorities. he is here to talk about the republicans' future and the

grandchildren is called "dear chandler, dear scarlett." >> he's here to talk about that. governor, welcome. >> thank you very much, charlie, norah. >> as you said, there's some people in my party who need a comuppance. who and why? >> the heart and soul of the republican party, working class people. we have not spoken to those people. the fact is the rank and file american, the person who is out there trying to raise a family, carrying their lunch to work in a paper sack, that's the real republican party and we have failed to explain how a good conservative economic policy helps that person live his or her dreams. that's what we've got to -- >> including hispanics? >> absolutely, including hispanics. >> do you have to change your immigration policy? >> i think we have to be realistic. you're not going to send 12 million people home.
8:16 am
i paid a huge political price when i was governor and even as a presidential candidate saying you don't punish children for something their parents did. >> is moderate a bad word? >> it has been in the republican party, and if we're talking about moderating and being wimpish or not taking strong stands on important issues, that's not a good thing. i don't think republicans have to be wimpish. but they have to explain how their policies empower people rather than how it pushes people down. >> you supported todd akin or not? >> i did. >> you also supported richard murdock, right? >> i really wasn't involved in his campaign, but he's the nominee, i'm a team player, i'm going to support the people in our party. >> karen hughes used to be very close to president bush. if another republican man says another thing about rape other than it's a horrific violent crime, i want to personally cut out his tongue. >> nobody defends what todd akin said. todd akin didn't defend it. he apologized for it.
8:17 am
he repudiated it. what made me upset, charlie is ha the republicans did more damage to todd akin than the democrats had to. that was ridiculous. why did they go after him like that? they didn't go after karl rove when he said that he would have murdered todd akin. i think murder is pretty serious as well. but that shows the inconsistency. i think the party is going to have to decide either it stands with its people and it rehabilitates them when they say stupid things, as we all have done, or it doesn't. >> so what do you think todd akin meant when he said legitimate rape? >> i'm not trying to get into his head. i think what he was talking about was the concept of statutory or forcible. the fact is it doesn't matter. he knew he made a mistake and he apologized for it. >> you differ from other members of the republican party on that. there is a split there. mitt romney, it was a 20-point gender gap that. is the biggest gender gap in half a century. don't you think the comments of akin and murdock led to that or do you think it was something
8:18 am
else? >> i think it was more than that. look, we lost senate candidates all over the country that had nothing to do with that. campaigns and candidates that should have won, that everyone thought would win, and they got beat as bad as todd akin did. i think that's not a fair assessment of what happened in the elections. >> a quick thing about benghazi, do you think that david petraeus should testify in congress notwithstanding his resignation as cia director? >> sure. i think he has to. and i think he will. he's an honorable man. he did a very unfortunate and a terrible thing with his family. but it does not take away from who he is and the extraordinary career that he's had as a person who has dodged bullets for the rest of us as americans. we were stand in line at starbucks trying to decide latte or regular coffee, he was out there taking bombs and bullets for america. i don't want to ever forget that for this true hero. >> i have in my hand "dear
8:19 am
chandler, dear charlotte." what matters most? >> i think making sure that your kids and grandkids have a connection with who their ancestors are so that they'll understand who they are. and we miss that so much. we get so wrapped up in the things that we think are important like the news of the day. but you know what? a hundred years from now, my descendants are not going to be talking about benghazi or david petraeus. they're going to be trying to figure out who they are and can they somehow create the next generation and train them to be their replacements. this is a fun book i think people will truly enjoy. >> thank you very much, mike huckabee. director oliver stone is just ahead on "cbs this morning." i was once used for small jobs.

welcome back to "cbs this morning." oscar winner oliver stone has focused on recent history in movies like "platoon", "jfk" and "born on the fourth of july." his new documentary series is called "oliver stone's untold history of the united states."
8:31 am
>> generations of americans have been taught that the united states reluctantly dropped atomic bombs at the end of world war ii to save the lives of hundreds of thousands of young men poised to die in an invasion of japan. but the story is really more complicated, more interesting, and much more disturbing. >> the film is also told in a book called "the untold history of the united states." oliver stone joins us in the studio. welcome. >> hello, charlie. nice to see you. >> "the new york times" called your series a ten-part indictment of the united states that doesn't pretend to be even-handed. is that a fair appraisal if. >> no, i don't think so. they said a few other things that i don't agree with. but coming from the established press, i'm not surprised. we've done a very -- not only untold, but unboring history of the united states. there's a reason high school students across the country do not study history and do not
8:32 am
know history, because they've cut out all the good parts. >> you said it took you four years to make this and there are things that kids are not learning in school. what is it that you want us to know? >> well, you're asking -- let's start with the origin of world war ii. >> that's where you begin the series. >> we do. and we begin with the idea that we acknowledge the soviet contribution, the major contribution that they made. they actually won world war ii on land. and they beat the german military machine, which is not something you learn ordinarily in school. we go from there to the dropping of the atomic bomb, which was millitarily and morally unnecessary. and we go from there to the origins of the cold war. so in these first three chapters, for example, we cover the whole beginnings of this american national security and global security state that we have. >> okay. how about this. why were you so fascinated with it? maybe that's a better question. >> i was born there. i was born in '46. my father was a republican. i was raised a conservative, a believer in the american
8:33 am
mythology. like millions of others influenced by and i went to war in vietnam for it. that's not the only reason. the education in my life through travel, experience, around the world. i saw another way of life. i saw life through chinese eyes, through russian eyes, through asian eyes. and as a result, i think what's lacking in our foreign policy and our policy in general is we have an american exceptionalism. we consider ourselves, as obama recently said again, the indispensable nation. as long as we have that attitude, we do not have the ability, the empathy or the compassion to see the world as a globe of which we are a partner. we are operating on the edge of a very dangerous precipice where we continue to contain and to find enemies and find a reason to bloeat our military budgets. >> other nations also feel that way about their country, that they're exceptional and
8:34 am
indispensable. >> that's not true. no country i've ever been to has ever felt they were the indispensable nation to the world and could dictate to others what they could do. >> china? >> no. they have one foreign base. we have 800-plus bases. china has no history of aggression. the united states does. we deal with this in the book. >> i want to talk to you about david petraeus. yo you're a former military man. do you believe he should have resigned? i'm curious about your thoughts about him. >> he's part of the military machine that's come into existence since 2001. and i don't understand all the furor. i mean, in american media, they praise him as a hero. i don't see the hero. i see a misguided policy in iraq, a misguided -- even more misguided policy in afghanistan. i don't think the surge worked. i think that was a lot of media hype. and i don't trust his
8:35 am
credentials. i mean, he was in vietnam, but he made his reputation writing about counterinsurgent si in vietnam, which i was told, you know what, get the press on your side. that was his counterinsurgency proposal. he's very good at that. when he appears on congress with, he seemed to woo the congressmen. they were falling at his feet. the military worship in this country has reached unhealthy proportions. the second time he appeared, it was about this much. the third time, it was about falling off his jacket. general marshall, by example, in world war ii, one of our great leaders, rarely we're his medals in public. >> why should we not honor those who fought and died for this country? at the end of the day, it's civilian leadership that sends them to war. >> i am all for honoring people who serve. i did serve. i'm a veteran myself. but i don't believe in false worship and hero worship and the
8:36 am
kind of hysteria. petraeus has not a record of success in iraq. more people died as a result of the surge, americans and more iraqis, and in afghanistan, he's begun a policy that's essentially backfired because of drone attacks creating more enemies for america. >> do you believe there was a false narrative about general petraeus? >> i do. >> in what way? >> i don't know how it started, but he appeared out of the blue as a magic man that was going to solve the problem in iraq. >> is this your own opinion? >> no, it was announced that he reversed a tide with the surge. you know, the surge is an interesting story. michael hastings knows a lot more about it. but there's a lot of bribery going on. whether it's vietnam, whether it's iraq, or afghanistan, there's a lot of payment of money that goes on. we buy people off. petraeus played both sides. >> the surge also was about
8:37 am
convincing the sunnis that they should turn on al qaeda. >> that's correct. but originally, we paid the shiites to kill the sunnis. then we went the other way, we gave money to the sunni tribal news to turn on al qaeda. but they were the -- a lot of them were al qaeda. you give money to somebody in a war situation, you think they're willing to stay loyal to you? they take the money because you're american and you're rich, you have all the weaponry, but they know you're gone, so when you're gone, they have to survive. same thing in vietnam. had the whole south vietnamese government which took our money, but didn't love us. money doesn't last. >> define your own political philosophy, as we talk about here. >> my political philosophy is live and let live as much as you. we cannot be global policemen. we have to be regional partners with every country in the world, whether it's venezuela, brazil, south america. whether it's china, russia,
8:38 am
turkey. respect regional powers. >> so the arguments on the part of anybody, no international organization should listen to any arguments about going into syria or supporting the rebels in syria, in your judgment. >> in the syrian interest story -- first of all, we've got to get our intelligence correct. we don't know exactly what's happened in syria and i don't think we should fight a war on that. as to international organizations, it would be a good idea for us to join one. we are the only nation that has resisted the united nations . >> i only do this because we have a time clock here. great to see you. >> four parts. oliver stone always has an interesting take. >> unboring. >> yes, unboring. it's true. instagram is kachanging the way that we see the world. we'll ask kevin systrom how his

there's another guy that invented instagram. do you know what it is? >> you take a picture thing and send it to your buddies. >> basically you take a picture with your iphone. you hit a button, it makes it look old. he sold that for a billion dollars. i'm looking at my kid going hey, can you come up with an app here? >> makes it look old. >> he's talking about you. >> when superstorm sandy hit the northeast, more than 800,000 pictures were shared online using instagram. "time" magazine even used a photo for the cover story. facebook bought it in april for one billion dollars.
8:42 am
instagram co-founder and ceo kevin systrom is here. welcome. >> thank you so much for having me. >> just in case there's somebody on the planet who doesn't know what it is that instagram does, tell them. >> instagram is a fast and beautiful way of sharing photos on a mobile phone. you share photos with your friends instantly and make them look beautiful. >> how did you have the idea? how did it come about? >> the instagram history really spans from my childhood until now, which is that i used to love taking photos with instant cameras. by taking instant photography and taking it to the digital age, we put the power of instant photography in your hand. >> and you now have more than a hundred million users, right? >> it's a lot. a hundred million users all using instagram to share the world as it happens. and that's what i think is most powerful about what we're doing. you take a photo, share it, and have it anywhere in the world within seconds. >> when you make this much money, in terms of what happened when you sold it to facebook, how does it change your life?
8:43 am
>> i mean, fundamentally, the most changing way that everything happened was that we started affecting everyone's lives. so you see an instagram photo on the cover of "time" magazine. you see people using it in ways you never thought you would. i think that's the most impactful part. >> in terms of you, the way you live your life, what you do every day. did you go out and buy a plane? >> new towels? >> i live in the same apartment i've lived in for five years. what it's about for me is working on an amazing project with amazing people. >> what do you think when you see clips like david letterman and denis leary talking about your product? what do you think when you see something like that? >> honestly, i think it comes back to the impact we're having and the fact that you look around anywhere in the world and people are using it. i was out last night and saw people using it in a restaurant. you go to tokyo, you see people using it in a bar. anywhere you go, instagram is there. >> and then you're on to the cover of "time" magazine.

so major news events like hurricane sandy and "time" magazine. is that your expectation, kevin? >> the expectation, at least early on, was that we would try to have that amount of impact. but to see hurricane sandy photos come in and realize that people are documenting a world event that everyone's going to look back on in 20 years and realize that instagram was at the center of this world event. >> you had ten instagram photos per second with hurricane sandy. the election, too, record number of photographs taken. there's a kind of journalism in some ways that goes along i think with social media. we've seen facebook effect world change. i mean, arab spring. have you seen that yet with instagram? do you think about that when you think about your company, about how it can actually change the world? >> instagram is very much focused on smart phones. as smart phones begin to penetrate the populations, you'll see instagram take even more of a role in these types of things. with hurricane sandy, with ten
8:45 am
photos a second simply of hurricane sandy photos and that's it, you realize you're having an impact in a way you never expected before. >> is twitter becoming more powerful than facebook? >> i think it's powerful in different ways. i think they all have their roles. i think twitter does an amazing job at disseminating information very quickly. we disseminate visual information very quickly. i think facebook is the center of social information. i think all three of them form a very nice triangle. >> what's the future of facebook say? >> i think it's about connecting people. i think in the future, they're going to connect via mobile, via desk top, via different devices that we have. it's all about the social connections. >> and they can monetize on smart phones and on mobile technology? >> and i think they are. i think what's interesting is the more engagement you see in the palm of your hand, you realize that's an opportunity we're all going after. >> i know mark zuckerberg tried to hire you in 2006. are you sorry you turned him
8:46 am
down? >> it was one of the mistakes i made. i feel very lucky to have been part of many companies and i got to see interesting companies grow, everything from twitter to facebook to google, and for me, it's really about knowing the smartest people in the world, because i feel like i get to learn more from them. >> and now you get the chance to meet charlie and gayle. >> exactly. >> nick faldo won the masters and the british open three times each. he'll talk this morning of building a perfect golf swing and why tiger woods hasn't won a major title in four years. that's next right here on "cbs this morning."

who loves golf? we do. cbs sports golf analyst nick faldo won six grand slam titles in his career. his how-to book for golfers, "a swing for life" has just been updated and rereleased. >> it marks the 25th anniversary of his first major championship, the 1987 british open. nick faldo joins us now. welcome. >> i've still got that sweater. i was in that sweater. and it fits. how about that? even more impressive. >> when you set out to write this book, what did you -- how did you want to do it? what did you want to accomplish? >> well, i would almost call it an absolute must. i played pro-ams for 30-plus years and i can really categorize the club golfer. been to several different areas. this is what happens in your swing. your weight is on your heels. this is what happens when your alignment is this way. that's what i try to bring everybody back, to give them
8:50 am
some idea of trying to hit the golf ball in the right direction. because the one -- nthe number one thing is golf alignment. the guy would fire it straight into the trees and i would say good shot. i would say no, that's right where you aimed. so that's half the problem. >> so how would you describe the perfect golf swing? >> how old wow you describe it? >> yeah. >> actually, the great thing about our game is we have our fundamentals, which i read theo. and then my open championship. now i walk down the range with my cbs hat on asking the best golfers, i just tweaked my grip. posture is getting a little sloppy. doesn't matter whether you're a beginner or the best in the world, the fundamentals stack up. the more you can do that, it's the building blocks to a good
8:51 am
swing. >> so you're trying to build a swing that can repeat. >> exactly. and the number one thing, you play great one day, come back the next day, what happened? and even worse, i always say get to the third tee and go i don't get it, it was great on the range. >> nick, you were talking to the golf virgin at the table. so please help me understand why this game means so much to you. charlie during the break said this is a book that's perfect for smart golfers. tell me your love of the game and why this is such a great book for a smart golfer. >> i was a sportsman looking for a sport when i was a kid. i loved my swimming. but training at 5:00 in the morning doing three miles with a mouthful of water really gets old. i tried cycling. fall off your bike, throw up and the guy goes good ride. then i found golf. and the fascination for me is that every shot is different. if you hit a good one, you try
8:52 am
and do it again. you hit a bad one, you try and avoid it. on the golf course, every shot is different. every hole is different. that means every round is different. every day is different. every week is different. so you can engross yourself. that's why it gets you. it's a love. it's a passion. i started at 14. by time i was 15, i made my decisions. i said look, i want to be a pro golfer. and i was off on a mission. >> who do you watch now and say fabulous player? >> well, an awful lot of them. the top end is good. it's colorful, exciting stuff. we've got young rory mcilroy kind of leading the way when he does some special stuff like he did at the pga. that was quite something. >> we've got 30 second. you do not believe that tiger will win 18. >> i think it's tough. he's had four years now without a major. and he's starting to question a few things in his own swing. that's it. >> not even surpassing jack. you don't even think he'll win
8:53 am
another major, you've said. >> well, you can't put the absolute. you have to
